Korngold: Portrait & Concert chronicles the life of composer Erich Wolfgang Korngold from his days as a child prodigy in the 1920s to the peak of his career in the 1940s, when he provided a number of scores for a variety of Warner Bros. films, including but not limited to A Midsummer Night's Dream, Captain Blood, and The Prince and the Pauper. Biographer and President of the International Korngold Society Brendan G. Carroll offers a wealth of personal insight in the composer's life, and conductor Hugh Wolff leads the Frankfurt Radio Symphony Orchestra in a concert featuring Korngold's cello and violin concertos, as well as several excerpts from some of his more notable film scores.
